A display that’s up to 2x brighter in the sun
For those bright, sunshiny days, the Super Retina XDR display now reaches a peak of 2000 nits outdoors that’s twice as bright as before and the highest peak brightness of any smartphone. So, text jumps right off the screen.

The Pro camera system
Introducing the all-new 48MP Main camera with an advanced quad-pixel sensor. The quad-pixel sensor on the Main camera makes the most of 48 megapixels by adapting to what you’re shooting. For most photos, you want to optimize for light capture. So the new sensor groups four pixels together into one large quad pixel, gathering 4x more light and producing spectacularly better photos at the practical 12MP size.
Photos and HDR videos get a big boost
Up to 1600 nits peak brightness, bringing iPhone to the same level as the Pro Display XDR. Movies, shows, and even the films you’ve shot on iPhone look truer to life than ever.
The quad-pixel sensor
The quad-pixel sensor allows us to go beyond the three fixed lenses of the Pro camera system to create an additional 2x Telephoto. Which expands your zoom options to 0.5x, 1x, 2x, and 3x.
